What is OrgSync?

OrgSync is a web application that allows students and faculty to join, organize, manage and communicate with registered student organizations and their members. OrgSync's layout resembles "Facebook" but is strictly for University of Akron's campus.

If your student organization is interested in learning more about OrgSync, come to one of our bi-monthly OrgSync trainings.
